Hello, um, my name is Anastacia Duval, and I'm with the New York Police Department. I'm in possession of a text, found in the library, which appears to be written in Egyptian hieroglyphs... We - Kara Thrace and I - are looking for anyone who might be able to translate it. We think it may be of some importance as to why we are here, though we're, of course, not certain of that.
Another pause, and then brightly:
Also, we'll be holding a party very soon, and you're all invited to join. It's a ball, so dress accordingly.
